Want to show your Big Blue Spirit?

As a loyal MU alum, you know that True Blue Day is fast approaching on April 30th.  A celebration of our Founder’s Day, this year marks a special occasion: 120 years of Millikin!  In honor of MU’s Big Blue Birthday, we’ve set a special challenge for ourselves:

1200 donors for 12 decades of Millikin.

If this challenge is met, $100,000 in matching funds from several generous donors will be unlocked! 

Do you have the Big Blue Spirit we’re looking for?  Are you up for the challenge?  Then become a True Blue Ambassador! 

Here’s what your role would entail:

  • Make a gift of any size in support of the True Blue Challenge
  • Creating a social media post or story using our provided images
  • Upload a video and use your own words to explain why you love Millikin and why you are participating in the True Blue Challenge
  • Wear blue on April 30!
